Sodium and water excretion abnormalities in congestive heart failure. Determinant factors and clinical implications.

Abstract

The renal hemodynamic and neurohumoral determinants of sodium and water excretion abnormalities were studied in 66 patients with severe chronic congestive heart failure. Abnormalities were not closely related to any one variable but were the result of the convergence of a number of determinants. The most important determinants for sodium excretion were… (More)
